As a linebacker coming out of UCLA, some looked at Akeem Ayers as a potential 3-4 outside linebacker because of his size (6-3 254) and blitzing ability. He ended up in a 4-3 with the Titans and not rushing the passer much at all in 2011, but that sounds like it could change next season. Ayers has been spending a lot of time this offseason with new pass rushing coach Keith Millard in an attempt to become a better pass rusher.
This suggests that not only could we see Ayers blitz more in 2012, but with the Titans lacking depth at defensive end, he could play there in obvious passing situations in sort of a joker role made popular by Mathias Kiwunaka, Brian Orakpo, Von Miller, and Kamerion Wimbley, who now happens to be a starting defensive end in Tennessee.

Tommie Campbell is not a very big name and he didn’t play much at all last year, which makes sense seeing as he was a mere 7th round pick rookie. However, Titans defensive coordinator Jerry Gray raised some eyebrows when he called Campbell his team’s 2nd best cornerback, at least in terms of technique.

Tennessee Titans’ first-round-pick, Baylor wide receiver Kendall Wright felt right for the Titans at pick No. 20 in their draft. Will he be the right pick for fantasy owners in 2012?
Wright comes into the NFL off a 1,663 yard and 14 touchdowns performance in 2011 to close out his four-year career. Over that span Wright amassed 4,004 yards and 30 receiving touchdowns...
Under Jeff Fisher, the Titans were a run heavy, defense, field position team, but with Fisher gone, it appears they’ve gone in another direction. They spent a 1st round pick on a wide receiver, Kendall Wright, despite having 2 good under 30 ones, Kenny Britt and Nate Washington, and they also have a very good, young pass catching tight end in Jared Cook. They spent a 1st round...
Titans GM Ruston Webster claimed the competition for the starting job at center will be "wide open". The so-called "competition" for Eugene Amano's job will consist of three undrafted free agents: veteran backups Fernando Velasco and Kevin Matthews, and rookie William Vlachos. That doesn't sound like much competition to me. This coming after the Titans...
